The Acronym Server: find and submit acronyms and meanings The origins of acronyms are a little unclear, but their widespread use in daily life is a relatively modern phenomenon and the result of growing literacy in the 19th and 20th centuries. In more restricted circumstances, however, they have been in use for thousands of years (both the Roman and Hebrew cultures used them). There is a shortage of good articles on the web about the history and development of acronyms: the best is probably at Wikipedia. There is also an unimaginable quantity of garbage put out by the ignorant, some of which is now rightly being exposed as Urban Myth (see example). About us As a footnote to all this, we began serving acronyms to the Internet in late 1987, with an email interface (you sent email with a request and got back the answer), so we've been collecting acronyms from all over for the best part of three decades. In 1991 we moved the service to the web, although the email interface continued in parallel until 1996.

DIVII - English Dictionary Divii - English Video Dictionary has been developed by Subcommune, Inc - an US-based software development company operating from different parts of the world like India, South Korea, and others. The concept of Divii has been developed by Minkyu Koo, CEO and founder of Subcommune, Inc. The sole purpose of Divii is to resolve some of the core problems faced by English learners for a long time like non-availability of proper references and lack of time. The examples of words/phrases are always presented hypothetically, making life more difficult for people wanting to learn English as their second language. The idea of Divii is further based on the fact that more than 55% of the contents on web are in English and can be used as real-world examples to learn the language. Our Mission The ultimate goal of Divii is not just to restrain itself as a mere dictionary app. About the CEO Minkyu Koo graduated from Fordham University in 2011 with MBA in Finance & Accounting.
